Help with rising textbook costs by utilizing items we already have with Leganto.
Leganto is a tool that enables you to easily create, maintain, evaluate, and share course reading lists. You can assemble materials of all types -- physical books, ebooks, journal articles, newspaper articles, websites, videos -- and using the Leganto search feature you can easily find and add these items from the library. At the end of the semester, the library staff archives all reading lists for copyright purposes. However, faculty are welcomed to contact the library if they would like to reuse or review a past list from another semester.
Leganto Reading Lists can be easily added to Brightspace D2L or you can get a link to Leganto Reading Lists. To learn more about creating a Leganto Reading List, visit the Leganto Reading List Guide.
Ask your subject librarian for help creating your list or to troubleshoot any questions.
Step 2 of the Leganto Reading List Guide shows how to add different types of items to Leganto, so refer to it for specific instructions.
Please keep these policies in mind when adding items to Leganto:
Nationally, the average undergraduate student spends over $1,200 a year on textbooks and other course materials. Recent surveys indicate that 65% of students have chosen not to purchase a course text because it was too expensive. St. Catherine University Library can help faculty find and use alternative, high quality, low cost materials in their courses in efforts to lower these costs for students. Go to the Affordable Textbooks Guide for more information.
